The man had soul

Hi, all. Sounds fabulous, Andrew! Thanks for all of your hard work.❤️

YAY!! Dancing dances won't cost you a dime!

Thanks, Jen - yes this one a few years in preparation.

Exactly, Gina!

Wow, that one really brought the energy!
Avatar 6:10pm cometothesunshine:

A great, very hot record, Hyperdose
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm Gaylord Fields:

Hi, Andrew! I am so here for the Dusty-rama! (Also, nice to hear Dusty giving a shout-out to Jersey City's own Bea Verdi, my second-favorite composer with that surname.)
Avatar 6:10pm cometothesunshine:

Definitely some intense productions made by Dusty - who sounds great live too
Avatar 6:11pm cometothesunshine:

Gaylord - glad you could make it for Dusty Fest!
  6:11pm uptown jen:

Hi, sw2442!
  6:11pm MOM WHIG:

Hey Gaylord, Gina, uptown Jen
Avatar 6:12pm WLSClark:

Man, just too late for Little by Little live. One of my fave Dustys. Hi Andrew, Mom Whig, sw2442 and the rest. Can't wait to hear these waxes. I'll close my eyes and count to ten....
  6:12pm DennisK:

Dusty stands alone, IMHO!
Avatar 6:12pm cometothesunshine:

You can definitely tell that From 1963-1971 Dusty ALWAYS delivered
Avatar 6:13pm cometothesunshine:

Orange Peel played the Betty Everett version of this one earlier
Avatar 6:13pm cometothesunshine:

It is interesting how Dusty experimented heavily with recording in America before doing an entire album (Memphis) here.
Avatar 6:14pm cometothesunshine:

I love how she wanted to make soul records so Philips paired her with Shelby Singleton & Ray Stevens, but they did the job!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm Gaylord Fields:

Andrew, this will be the first of many times I listen to this particular show, I guarantee!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm Gaylord Fields:

Mom Whig!
Avatar 6:15pm cometothesunshine:

Let's hope - I build them for long term use.
Avatar 6:15pm WLSClark:

Gaylord, you should do a Dusty sound alike show--oh you have. :)
  6:15pm MOM WHIG:

Hey Dennis, WLSClark
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm HyperDose:

Great vocalists make it look so effortless. What a powerhouse she was.
  6:16pm DennisK:

Hey Mom!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:16pm Gaylord Fields:

Haha, WLSClark!
Avatar 6:17pm cometothesunshine:

My only regret is that there is a whole crop of 60s songs Dusty sings back-up on, which would make a nice set.
Avatar 6:18pm cometothesunshine:

I think she is on a few of Madeline Bell's (who co-wrote this with her).
  6:18pm uptown jen:

Avatar 6:18pm cometothesunshine:

I do wonder how many unpublished originals Dusty never got to record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Gaylord Fields:

I once did a set of the handful of songs she either wrote or co-wrote, and it makes you wish she had written more.
Avatar 6:18pm mce1965:

You're starting with a bang here my friend
Avatar 6:19pm mce1965:

I can barely catch my breath
Avatar 6:19pm Olivia Greene:

Indeed, enjoying this immensely!
Avatar 6:19pm cometothesunshine:

Gaylord - her vulnerable voice tells you everything about her.
Avatar 6:20pm cometothesunshine:

Bigger Than Rod
  6:20pm uptown jen:

Didn’t know she covered this!
  6:20pm MickG:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm Gaylord Fields:

@uptown jen: It's actually the original, which predated the Zombies version. Rod Argent wrote it for her.
  6:21pm uptown jen:

Didn’t know that at all. It definitely suits her.
Avatar 6:22pm Beantown Doug:

Thank you for the original mono presentations.
Avatar 6:22pm cometothesunshine:

Glad you dig 'em, Doug!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm Gaylord Fields:

Rod's no fool, Jen.
Avatar 6:24pm mce1965:

Hey, I saw that Hi-Fi Stereo designation
Avatar 6:24pm cometothesunshine:

Yes, the mono albums and many of the singles are now extinct digitally since the catalog has been extensively remixed for stereo (without period reverb).
  6:24pm jfmlaugh:

Do Re Mi...what fun song!
Avatar 6:25pm Beantown Doug:

Stereo fades to mono in the sleeve photos!
Avatar 6:25pm cometothesunshine:

MCE 1965 - perfection comes with correction
Avatar 6:26pm WLSClark:

This song makes me think about her and how she hosted the great Ready Steady Go UK TV'er for Motown artists. IF you do not have Andy Neill book, it has great Dusty photos too.
  6:26pm jfmlaugh:

To me...she has so many different styles, that's why she's so great!
Avatar 6:26pm mce1965:

Avatar 6:26pm cometothesunshine:

The Zombies also did a fun BBC version of this one.
Avatar 6:27pm cometothesunshine:

Andy's book is excellent - still digesting it!
Avatar 6:28pm cometothesunshine:

The Sweet Ride: At a Malibu rented house, a tennis hustler, a surfer and a musician enjoy a Bohemian lifestyle, fall in-love with an unexpected female visitor and fight off a motorcycle punk gang.
Avatar 6:28pm WLSClark:

That book sets the record straight for those of us who only knew those wonderful Dave Clark shows. The UK REAL shows were amazing artifacts. I always thought it would be like our American bandstand, but it was SO much cooler and on late Friday nights, not Saturday afternoons like our show.
Avatar 6:29pm cometothesunshine:

A lot more live music than AB for sure!
Avatar 6:30pm cometothesunshine:

My sponsor this week is Great Shakes
Avatar 6:30pm WLSClark:

Dusty was such a huge part. Was amazed that Donovan was put on without even having a record out!
  6:30pm Santos L Halper:

Loving the Dusty-fest, thanks Andrew!
Avatar 6:31pm cometothesunshine:

Donovan was/is amazing
Avatar 6:31pm cometothesunshine:

Thanks SLH
Avatar 6:32pm WLSClark:

Its so amazing how Donovan was such an icon nearly that of Donovan for the "love parade" days and then suddenly nowhere by 1970. I figured he would be huge forever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Steeley Chris:

The Great Shakes jingle is always stuck in my head. Never heard the Dusty version before. The show is sounding great!
Avatar 6:32pm sw2442:

I'm curious...I was born in late 1969, and I don't think I've tried a Great Shake. Has anybody tried it?...and was it as good as the commercials say it was?
  6:32pm jfmlaugh:

Andrew...I can hear you dancing to this. Ha!
Avatar 6:33pm cometothesunshine:

Thanks, SteeleyC!
Avatar 6:33pm cometothesunshine:

Great Shakes was probably not as good as a real shake.
Avatar 6:34pm WLSClark:

The one that started it all for her solo career, right?
Avatar 6:34pm cometothesunshine:

Whatever made it stand up to a straw was likely not great.
Avatar 6:34pm cometothesunshine:

Yes, Clark 11/63 - she started from the top.
Avatar 6:35pm cometothesunshine:

I wonder who is going crazy drumming on Stay Awhile?
Avatar 6:36pm cometothesunshine:

Lead drums!
Avatar 6:36pm WLSClark:

Despite Philips having cheap B/W pic sleeves, they at least gave her pic sleeves like this record. They really did well with her sleeves despite being the cheapest coloring and one sided sleeves.
  6:36pm Scandiphile:

Sounds great, just joining!
Avatar 6:36pm cometothesunshine:

Welcome, Scandiphile!
Avatar 6:37pm cometothesunshine:

Clark - I have all of the US 45's and dubbed them for this show. In nearly every case, the UK Philips played better.
Avatar 6:37pm KarenS:

Hi Andrew & Kids, amazing Orange Peel show and now the Dusty Spectacular! Wow-eeee!
Avatar 6:38pm cometothesunshine:

Welcome, Karen S.
Avatar 6:39pm WLSClark:

I believe that UK vinyls were better. I have some Philips like that such as Brian Hyland's "Stay Away from Her"--US is so inferior sound from UK--both Philips.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm Gaylord Fields:

A spectacular Dusty-written tune!
Avatar 6:40pm cometothesunshine:

Even unplayed Philips 45s have that styrine splatter
Avatar 6:40pm cometothesunshine:

The US ones
Avatar 6:40pm cometothesunshine:

I wonder if Dusty had a whole album of originals in her, Gaylord?
Avatar 6:41pm cometothesunshine:

I do know that she was obsessed with her cats.
  6:42pm jfmlaugh:

How are you new cats doing now?
Avatar 6:43pm cometothesunshine:

My cats are doing very well!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm Gaylord Fields:

Andrew, she was such a perfectionist that it probably made her super-self-critical of her songwriting talents. Our loss, judging from the ones we did get. Her brother was no slouch as a songwriter, either.
  6:43pm Gina:

You'll probably lose your audience and career-- what do you think you'll do then? <--- great interview technique! LOL
Avatar 6:44pm cometothesunshine:

Poor Dusty!
Avatar 6:44pm WLSClark:

So cool how she can sit and talk and then belt this out on the spot.
Avatar 6:44pm Beantown Doug:

Wishin' and Hopin' is my favorite Dusty single.
  6:44pm MOM WHIG:

One of my FAVS Wishing and Hopin
Avatar 6:45pm cometothesunshine:

Gina - I think it was a fair question, no one knew. And Dusty really lost her direction later, but for awhile she knew what she wanted on stage and record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm Gaylord Fields:

Gina, that's EVERY mid-1960s interview! :) "What will you do when the bubble bursts on this whole pop 'fad' and the kids go back to their hula hoops or whatever?"
Avatar 6:45pm cometothesunshine:

That being said, until Memphis, her albums have little thematic cohesion.
Avatar 6:45pm cometothesunshine:

She was great at singles.
Avatar 6:47pm cometothesunshine:

This one was not a hit - but is very ambitious
Avatar 6:48pm WLSClark:

gaylord, just like WFMU? " What happens when it goes away?" Am SO glad that the public station I started on in its' frist year is going strong here 40 years on now. Power to the people!

I don't know many better records than this one. Was happy to buy this at Randy's in AZ for $2.95 - one of many copies.
  6:50pm Scandiphile:

and THIS is my favorite record of hers
  6:50pm uptown jen:

One of my favorites as well.
Avatar 6:50pm WLSClark:

I love the American Breed 45 of this too.
Avatar 6:50pm cometothesunshine:

No other version comes close
Avatar 6:51pm Beantown Doug:

Boo to Haeco-CSG processing!
Avatar 6:51pm WLSClark:

Andrew, what perfect timing! haha
  6:51pm Gina:

Andrew-- Fair question material, agreed. But the approach was unusual and working from the negative, left little space to dance...
Avatar 6:51pm cometothesunshine:

Orange Peel played the slow American Breed take earlier, Clark!
Avatar 6:52pm cometothesunshine:

I love this "finished" version
Avatar 6:53pm Beantown Doug:

I heard that Orange Peel used to be on the air in Mexico as Piel de Naranja. ;-)
Avatar 6:54pm cometothesunshine:

Gina - I do think Dusty exceeded expectations as she had already been successful in the Springfields and was initially seen as a novelty.
Avatar 6:54pm WLSClark:

That figures I would miss Mr. Peel playing it. I usually catch his show. STILL amazed by the great Merry Go Round track he played. Emitt is an idol of mine (musically, of course).
Avatar 6:55pm cometothesunshine:

Jeff Barry & Bobby Bloom delivering what they didn't for the Monkees: a truly great song.
Avatar 6:55pm WLSClark:

Didn't Tom S write some of her songs?
  6:55pm jfmlaugh:

Wow...haven't heard Haunted in decades! Awesome!
  6:56pm Gina:

Andrew- Can't argue with that! ... Do we know who is playing bass on "Haunted"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

I LOVE this version. So sublime!
Avatar 6:57pm cometothesunshine:

Gina - it would be a NYC session player on bass
Avatar 6:58pm cometothesunshine:

GGGG - Dusty actually rec'd this in 1968 and held it from release till 1970
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

I have it on LP but not on 45..
Avatar 7:01pm cometothesunshine:

I only just got my 45 - I know where I can get another if you need it, Glynis
  7:03pm Gina:

Vive Legrand!
Avatar 7:04pm cometothesunshine:

She could definitely sing live
  7:05pm Scandiphile:

What was the occasion, Andrew?
Avatar 7:05pm cometothesunshine:

Her 1969 TV series, which is now lost
  7:06pm Scandiphile:

Ah, OK
Avatar 7:07pm sw2442:

I love this version of How Can I Be Sure...I like the sound of it...
Avatar 7:07pm cometothesunshine:

Yes, a really nice version sw2442
Avatar 7:07pm cometothesunshine:

she brings her style to it
Avatar 7:08pm WLSClark:

Agree totally, sw2442
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

Sw2442 - her heart and soul into it, and the sweeping orchestration 💕
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm Gaylord Fields:

Dusty's version of the Rascals song reminds me of something WFMU's Matt Fiveash once said to me: If several singers have covered an artist's song, Dusty's cover is the best cover.
Avatar 7:08pm cometothesunshine:

She is the very best at insecure songs
Avatar 7:10pm cometothesunshine:

her head voice is insane - such a skillful singer
Avatar 7:10pm cometothesunshine:

Rarely strident, always soulful
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Gaylord Fields:

And she's the second-best Bacharach interpreter (sorry, Lou Johnson — third place is no shame).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

Right on Gaylord (Matt) -she FELT so much more into a song than anyone else could
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Gaylord Fields:

Glynis, no lie detected in Matt's statement whatsoever — I quote it a lot.
Avatar 7:11pm cometothesunshine:

She definitely wrapped her character in each song.
Avatar 7:11pm WLSClark:

Oh yeah. I got this stereo DJ 45 in 1968 when it came out and could not believe how great it was. Then to find it not become a hit here was a crime. At least the UK let it hit big.
Avatar 7:13pm cometothesunshine:

Glynis I am attracted to the vulnerability in her voice rather than the strength.
  7:14pm MOM WHIG:

Dusty always put her "all in a song" - so you believe it.
Avatar 7:14pm sw2442:

I once played I Close my Eyes...to a good friend of mine. She was amazed by it...of course, we're no longer friends...she's probably forgotten it by now...

"I Close My Eyes..." makes me cry :-) . And I never knew Keith Mansfield was involved with that!

Goo to see you Patrick- amazing tunes so far
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm Gaylord Fields:

"You Don't Have to Say You Love Me" is not much of a song, but it's one of the best performances on record, solely because of Dusty's show-stopping vocal prowess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm patrick321:

Hi Mom Whig thx yes it looks that way I'll have to go back and listen from the start.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm HyperDose:

@Gaylord Couldn't have said it better. That song is more instrumentally driven to me. Her voice being the perfect accompaniment.
  7:21pm jfmlaugh:

What Have we Done To Deserve This awesome setlist?

Thanks Andrew ~ I have to run, but I'll catch up with this tomorrow!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Gaylord Fields:

@HyperDose: Dusty makes bad songs great, good songs spectacular, and what she does for great songs I don't quite have the words to describe.
Avatar 7:22pm WLSClark:

jfm, indeed this is a great way to hear her classics and songs I did not know.
Avatar 7:23pm cometothesunshine:

I hope I am only playing the great ones tonight - with plenty of good ones still left.
Avatar 7:24pm cometothesunshine:

I love this live version

Springfield Sings Newman
Avatar 7:26pm cometothesunshine:

She could have done an amazing Bacharach album, amazing Newman album and Goffin/King
Avatar 7:27pm WLSClark:

I cannot say that this is better than Gene Pitney or BST--those 2 versions are just TOO good.
Avatar 7:29pm sw2442:

I couldn't agree more Andrew...she was just as good at interpretation Bacharach and David as Dionne was...
Avatar 7:30pm cometothesunshine:

sw2442 - perhaps her only flaw was insecurity. She was a major artist and burned out too soon.
Avatar 7:30pm sw2442:

WLS Clark...all three are great...I like Dusty's and BST's versions most of all...
Avatar 7:31pm WLSClark:

This summer of love song was perfect for the time and place.....
Avatar 7:32pm sw2442:

Dusty's The Look of Love is, hands down, the sexiest Pop song I've EVER heard...even more the Sergio Mendes' Brazil 66 version...
Avatar 7:32pm WLSClark:

sw2442, Gene's got so much airplay and top 10 on WLS that it was my first version and stuck in my head ever since...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Gaylord Fields:

Andrew, sad but true. If only she had found a way to love herself as much as her adoring public does.
Avatar 7:35pm cometothesunshine:

Maybe her cats were able to breakthrough?
  7:35pm uptown jen:

Avatar 7:36pm cometothesunshine:

I think this is the perfect Dusty record
  7:36pm uptown jen:

This was my favorite Dusty song for a long time, but today proves it has a lot of competition.
Avatar 7:36pm cometothesunshine:

She sounds at ease on this one.
Avatar 7:37pm Beantown Doug:

Hmm... Dusty almost sounds like Carole in spots.
Avatar 7:37pm sw2442:

There's a great performance of Dusty performing Some of Your Lovin' on Hullabaloo in either '64 or '65...I think she's lip-syncing, but still it looks great...
Avatar 7:38pm cometothesunshine:

Doug - very close to the demo in every way
Avatar 7:39pm sw2442:

My favorite song on Dusty on Memphis...I especially love the ending when it goes into a completely different key...so effective...
Avatar 7:39pm cometothesunshine:

Sw2442 - a flawless album
Avatar 7:41pm sw2442:

Andrew...one of my ten favorite albums of all-time...and I didn't discover it until 1997!...
Avatar 7:41pm cometothesunshine:

Mine too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm dreamyandseedy:

really enjoying the show today!!
Avatar 7:42pm cometothesunshine:

I wasn't sure how to present the songs today from the album, but they found their place as I agonized over the song order.
Avatar 7:42pm cometothesunshine:

Thanks, D&S!
Avatar 7:43pm cometothesunshine:

I actually really like what Gary Usher did with this
Avatar 7:44pm cometothesunshine:

A heavy song for 1966.
Avatar 7:44pm Beantown Doug:

It's interesting to hear the contrast between the more intimate recordings, and the big production numbers.
  7:44pm Scandiphile:

A nice contrast from the Byrds' version
Avatar 7:46pm cometothesunshine:

Allegedly, she would have playback of the backing tracks so loud in her headphones as to drown out her own voice.
Avatar 7:48pm WLSClark:

Great show.
Avatar 7:49pm cometothesunshine:

Thank you, Clark
Avatar 7:49pm sw2442:

Nice segue there Andrew...
Avatar 7:49pm cometothesunshine:

Thank you, sw2442
  7:50pm Vertual:

So glad I tuned in...what a great show. I agree - That segue was seamless!
Avatar 7:51pm cometothesunshine:

Thanks, glad you did Vertual
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm HyperDose:

Tom Dowd is a name I'm always happy to hear!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm patrick321:

Where are the streaming shows archived? I have to go back to the beginning
Avatar 7:53pm cometothesunshine:

Patrick - you can hear them right hear on the playlist page!
  7:54pm MOM WHIG:

BEST SHOW EVER - many many thanks tonite!
Avatar 7:54pm cometothesunshine:

if you are chatting on a desktop you can look left and see MP3 archives feed
Avatar 7:54pm WLSClark:

I taped this off WKYC in Cleveland when it came out and the DJ just raves about it, I think! That is how I usually listen to that song these days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm patrick321:

Thanks Andrew, and thanks for this amazing show. Just stunningly great.
Avatar 7:55pm cometothesunshine:

Thanks, Mom Whig - we are going for a bit longer tonight. Giving Orange Peel the night off he asked for.
Avatar 7:55pm cometothesunshine:

That is very nice of you to say Patrick
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Chop Scott:

Fantastic program Andrew--Thanks!
Avatar 7:56pm cometothesunshine:

Thanks, CS - we are doing a long show tonight, so stick around or listen to the rest when you can.
  7:56pm MOM WHIG:

Good to know
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm Kim Reynolds:

Great Dusty afternoon Andrew. Thank you!
Avatar 7:58pm WLSClark:

Indeed, Orange Peel has been working hard for you! ;)
Avatar 7:59pm cometothesunshine:

Welcome, Kim
  8:00pm Santos L Halper:

Bonus Dusty Sunshine, nice!
Avatar 8:00pm cometothesunshine:

Too good for just 2 hours - needed more Dusty
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05pm HyperDose:

"every ounce of strength" That's an understatement considering the challenges she faced, especially in her later years. Incredible woman.
  8:05pm theodolit:

How sweet it is listening to Dusty after all these years. She would age 82 one of the next days. Still remember this vocal impact with "Son of a preacher man" back in 1968. Greetings from Berlin, Germany
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm patrick321:

Staying for the overtime! Keep 'em coming.
Avatar 8:08pm WLSClark:

Me too. Double time, double payday!
Avatar 8:08pm cometothesunshine:

Yes, serendipity that the completion of this long in the making episode coincides with her birthday this week. Cheers to Dusty - I hope she likes it.
Avatar 8:11pm sw2442:

Willie and Laura Mae Jones should have been a bigger hit for Dusty...great song...wonderful groove...
Avatar 8:13pm cometothesunshine:

It is hard to say why she failed on Atlantic after her huge success with Preacher Man
Avatar 8:14pm cometothesunshine:

The album was certainly not a success. And people weren't expecting much from her, I guess. She was being pushed into the adult/Vegas direction and kind of lost her direction.
Avatar 8:14pm cometothesunshine:

Although the Gamble/Huff album also could have been better.
Avatar 8:15pm Matt Clarke:

At last! Off the clock and can finally tune in. Hey Andrew n all!
Avatar 8:15pm cometothesunshine:

Great, Matt! Hope you can catch a few good ones from the archive
Avatar 8:16pm Matt Clarke:

Definitely will dig into this archive
Avatar 8:16pm cometothesunshine:

If you like Dusty, there is a lot to love.
Avatar 8:17pm WLSClark:

Matt, some old sweet roll in these 45s tonight!
Avatar 8:18pm Matt Clarke:

Perfect soundtrack for a rainy night in Manhattan
Avatar 8:19pm cometothesunshine:

You might like the Orange Peel show which mirrors this one.
  8:21pm Santos L Halper:

Hard to go wrong withDusty, but this has been exceptional, thanks Andrew!
Avatar 8:22pm cometothesunshine:

Thank you, SLH!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

Thank you Andrew!!
Avatar 8:23pm Matt Clarke:

Thanks for doing this one, Andrew!
Avatar 8:23pm sw2442:

I think Dusty was informed that she was about to be inducted into the Rock and Roll HoF soon before she passed...it's a shame she wasn't there to accept her award and give an induction speech. She would've probably been a little overwhelmed, but very appreciative...thanks for a wonderful show today Andrew...
Avatar 8:23pm cometothesunshine:

Thank you, Glynis! I owe you a call this week to catch up. I will tune in on Thursday.
Avatar 8:23pm Woof:

Thank you, Andrew! This show has been amazing.
Avatar 8:24pm cometothesunshine:

Thank you, sw2442 & woof. I really enjoyed sharing this music with you all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Gaylord Fields:

Thanks for this perfect tribute to Our Dusty, Andrew!
Avatar 8:25pm cometothesunshine:

You are very welcome, Gaylord!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm HyperDose:

Thank you for this brilliant show, Andrew. Dusty has been an artist I've always wanted to do a deep dive into. Being able to hear her at different points in her career has been amazing. This episode gets a star (and many revisits). Thank you again for your diligence!
  8:28pm Fiddlesticks:

I love your shows, but this one is a treasure. I’m sure grateful for the Archives— this will be stellar in re-runs.
Avatar 8:29pm WLSClark:

Even that song with Pet Shop Boys was great too decades later.
Avatar 8:29pm cometothesunshine:

Thanks, Hyperdose. I learned a lot right alongside you!
  8:29pm uptown jen:

Thanks for your efforts on this show, Andrew. It was well worth the wait.
Avatar 8:29pm cometothesunshine:

Thank you, Fiddlesticks!
Avatar 8:30pm cometothesunshine:

Another great Dusty self-penned song
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Gaylord Fields:

My favorite of the four Dusty-written or co-written songs!
Avatar 8:31pm cometothesunshine:

Glad we snuck it in, Gaylord.
Avatar 8:31pm Matt Clarke:

Beautiful track
  8:31pm Scandiphile:

Loved the show, so many gems - and great to hear some live tracks.
Avatar 8:32pm cometothesunshine:

With all of the Dusty releases out there, I was happy to still pull out a few things that hadn't been available in this form.
Avatar 8:33pm DA the DJ:

Really enjoying the Dusty.
Avatar 8:33pm cometothesunshine:

Thanks, DA!
Avatar 8:34pm cometothesunshine:

Gaylord - this is even better than the UB40 version
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Gaylord Fields:

Andrew, especially because what would you have bumped if there wasn't room for it?
Avatar 8:35pm cometothesunshine:

Dusty is hard to contain once you go down the rabbit hole.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm Gaylord Fields:

Dusty wins that contest by a nose — Pinocchio's, that is.
Avatar 8:36pm cometothesunshine:

Maybe an artificially intelligent Dusty can someday do all the songbook albums I would have loved?
Avatar 8:37pm Beantown Doug:

It's curious to me that backup singers were used for Dusty, and Petula, and Aretha (including her sister), essentially turning solo artists in girl groups.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Gaylord Fields:

Yeah, Andrew, now that we have a covid vaccine, science can go back to working on the Dustybot 3000.
Avatar 8:38pm Creature Boy:

Someone recently brought up the fact that Chip Taylor is Jon Voight's brother which i had forgotten
Avatar 8:39pm cometothesunshine:

Poor Chip!
Avatar 8:40pm Creature Boy:

Avatar 8:40pm Creature Boy:

Well I think Voight was cool once upon a time but...yeah..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm Gaylord Fields:

Very prescient of Chip to preemptively change the family name.
Avatar 8:40pm Beantown Doug:

Chip Taylor... WUH??
  8:41pm MOM WHIG:

Good to see you Matt - an amazing show here
Avatar 8:41pm Creature Boy:

This, the ocd anthem
Avatar 8:45pm cometothesunshine:

The best of her Gamble/Huff sessions

Avatar 8:47pm Creature Boy:

So we're listening to the BBC transcription disk? Cool
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm Chop Scott:

Thanks again Andrew--fantastic!

Great stuff Andrew!
